Would Toledo-Columbus-Pittsburgh be a possibility with 2 or 3 more stops? I have no idea if there would be suitable rails or not.Toledo was only mentioned in the article as part of the three daily round trips between Chicago, Cleveland, Toledo and Detroit. They didn’t really provide any more details than that.
What other possibilities with TOL are you thinking? Heading south from TOL to Indianapolis? Northern route leaving TOL (bypassing DET) en route to Traverse City through Ann Arbor?
